Camp Lightbulb

Camp Lightbulb

Camp Lightbulb is a Summer Camp for LGBTQ+ teens. Puck Markham created Camp Lightbulb in 2011 as one of the first camps for LGBTQ+ youth in the nation. A core component of his vision was the creation of a Rainbow Squad: a group of validated and confident LGBTQ+ youth who support and have fun with one another.

Spaces like Camp Lightbulb are rare but critically important to the healthy development of queer youth. We chose Provincetown as our primary home because of the town’s vibrant LGBTQ+ community that has sustained for generations and have since expanded to New York City and Los Angeles. We intentionally host our camps in LGBTQ+-inclusive communities so that campers see the beauty of a community unapologetically flying free and can manifest a sense of pride within themselves.

As an entrepreneur for many years, I thrive in the fast-paced, people-centered real estate market. I enjoy working closely with sellers and buyers helping to bring their dreams to fruition through deep listening, networking, and negotiating. Whether you are looking to sell your family’s home or looking for the perfect vacation home, investment, or forever home, I can help make that happen.

Before moving to Cape Cod I worked as a realtor in the Watertown, Waltham, and Cambridge real estate markets, and for the last ten years I’ve been putting down roots here on the Outer Cape.

If you’re a local, you might know me from my coffee shop, P-Town Cafe, directing the Soup Kitchen in Provincetown, running the Meals on Wheels program in Wellfleet, or volunteering for Habitat for Humanity in Truro, Eastham, and Orleans.

Please give me a call or stop by our office in the heart of Provincetown to share your hopes and wish-lists with me. Together we can make your Cape Cod dreams a reality.

The small but endearing space offers works from the owner as well as pieces from noted craftspeople including Provincetown artist Gail Browne and master woodcarver Mike Orbe.

The property itself is an icon of Provincetown. Originally built in 1860, it’s been home to family businesses for generations. Sawyer’s great-grandfather ran his barbershop there and also sold eggs and poultry from the family farm that once thrived on the grounds. There may even have been a little business transacted with products from a home still during the days of prohibition!

Now Sawyer has taken the next step with Saltwater Serpent. The offerings are an eclectic collection of treasures that pay tribute to the artistic traditions of Provincetown influenced by the nautical history of Cape Cod. Be sure to check out the sweet little spot on Commercial Street!
